Erin Go Blog..

A little note about St.Patrick..His name was Maewyn Succat and born in the British Isles, a town near Dumbarton, Scotland. At 16, he was kidnapped and taken to Ireland to be a slave. Much of his time was on the slopes of the Flemish Mts tending to his masters sheep. His lonely hours were spent praying, morning and night, something that gave him great comfort. Six years passed and he escaped by ship, only to return years later. Ireland was full of paganism, Idolatry prevailed and with his great faith he led them to the Lord ..This is really an interesting story, and one that came from something he wrote..My thoughts on this story,
what is our purpose in life? You never know who's life you can change for the better..Listen to the voice inside you and pay close attention. We are not here for material wealth. What is of this earth, stays on this earth..but what is inside of you, for me it is the soul, will leave and join those we love in another life.. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you all..

Till next time, keep looking up..

Great story! I was lucky enough to go to Ireland in 2006...lots of history to learn there. A great place full of fascinating facts as well as tales (which is what I'm very fond of!). Happy St. Patrick's Day to you as well!

well some say he was from Wales and others Scotland :S At school we were always told Wales and then he went to Slemish Mountain in Co. Antrim....

As kids we were always told the 'big rock' where the fire was lit you could still feel the hit of the fire and of course every time we went up the Hill we would race to feel the rock. :)

I walk my dogs up there quite a bit and this still makes me smile when I walk past it :)
